‘Badhai Ho’: Pay up to your third Kid, local Authorities Informs elderly Chinese couple

It seems that the few, arguably the oldest on earth to possess a naturally conceived child may need to pay up for your present package.

The local authorities in southern China’s Shandong province is calculating how much to fine them with a third child, breaking the limitation of 2 kids, according to China’s family planning policy.

The couple has two kids into their’40s.

Partly to blame for the fine is going to be the worldwide publicity the new mum, Tian, a retired physician, along with her husband and former attorney, Huang Weiping, obtained following the arrival.

Cianci’s birth in the Zaozhuang maternity clinic a week was able to catch international headlines apart from bringing the scrutiny of officials in the local family planning section.

“Shandong Province regulations limit all couples to 2 kids, an exception might be made in case the kids are physically impaired or born via ex-spouses. Couples that violate these principles face a fine that’s calculated by a town’s average income and the amount of kids,” the tabloid Global Times reported.

According to the news accounts, Huang thought the regulation simply applied to reproductive girls around 49 years old and consequently his much-older wife could be exempted.

“Huang’s situation was under review,” an official in Zaozhuang health commission responsible for family planning events told the tabloid.

The new parents are pleased with the new arrival but their 2 quite adult kids are not.

Neither went into the hospital or their home after the new arrival and according to local press reports, the older son and daughter were equally mad with their parents upon studying their mom was pregnant.

State media had reported that a couple of Chinese Chinese couples, in their own’50s and’60s were choosing to get a late child particularly if their only child had died.

The Global Times had previously quoted a study from the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, which demonstrated as a consequence of the one-child coverage in the late 1970s into 2016–as it had been scrapped–there were 150 million just kids nationally.

Over 1 million households have lost their sole kids to ailments and injuries.
